Ryan Madson Set To Have Surgery On Self-Inflicted Broken Toe

Ryan Madson broke his toe after kicking a chair following a frustrating appearance on the mound. That's enough to make anyone feel stupid. This is more than enough.

Madson will have toe surgery tomorrow. Timetable to return unknown.

Toe surgery generally isn't the most complicated or significant of surgeries, but it's looking like Madson will be out for longer than was originally estimated. In the meantime, the Phillies will have to keep leaning on Jose Contreras while they hope that Brad Lidge can get himself comfortable in a hurry. Theirs is a bullpen that's lacking in the way of strikeout stuff.
